Before the Green Moon from Turnfollow is a sci-fi farming sim set at the base of a space elevator. You know, the usual. After giving us the short narrative-driven Wide Ocean Big Jackets, the indie team is back with another cozy experience. You’re part of a small community and are preparing for a trip to the moon. The people on the moon are ready to take some farmers up there and are looking at any potential candidates in your group.

The first step will be to choose your character. You can either go with the default option that the game presents to you or customize a new character. If you decide to customize it, your options will be to switch eyes, nose, mouth, hair, and glasses as you cycle through the different types. You can rotate your character with the ZL and ZR buttons to get a better look. And if you’re feeling a bit lazy, you can just press the Random button at the bottom of the screen to see what combination the game rolls for you. Choose your character’s name, and you’ll be ready to go!

 

Once you gain control after the initial cutscene, you’ll be able to run around each area by using the left analog stick. As you approach points of interest or other characters, you’ll be able to interact by pressing the A button. You’ll know you can interact since a large white dot will pop up. You can check your inventory by pressing the X button. Tools can be accessed with the L and R buttons. You can swap items by pressing left and right on the D-Pad as needed.

What tools will you be using? Since this is a chill farming simulator, you probably have a good idea of the tools you’ll be putting to work on this farm. If you’ve played games such as Harvest Moon or Story of Seasons, you’ll quickly get the hang of things. Use a till to prepare the soil so that you can plant something. Use the watering can to water the fields so that your plants can grow. Use the scythe to cut down the plants… even if the one left behind at the farm is a little bit dull.

 

All actions that you take use up some of your stamina, so you’ll need to be careful so that you don’t end up fainting! You should plan each day so that you can make the most of your time and your stamina. Prepare the ground, plant some seeds, water them, clear out the dry plants, and so on. On days when it rains, you won’t even have to water the plants! And if you’re running low on stamina, be sure to visit Elvis at Mess. He’ll cook you something delicious that will help you recover your stamina.

The Seed Dropbox will provide you with some seeds to get you started, and it will replenish each day so that you can grab new seeds, plant them, water them, and harvest the resulting plants so that you can sell them. Be sure to place things in the container so that they’re packed and loaded for delivery. Your account will then be credited overnight. The currency used is Moony, and it will be stored on your ID for ease of use. You can then use Moony and spend it on supplies or tools at the Moon Company vending machines you find. Upgrading your tools will be a must if you really want to go to the moon!

 

Before the Green Moon is a sci-fi farming sim set at the base of a space elevator.¬†As the new farmer, you’ll be working on making sure that the old farm is brought back to its former glory so that you can eventually go on a trip “up there.” You know, to the moon. You’ll have to pay for that trip, hence why you’re working hard to save enough to make it. How will your journey end? Before the Green Moon is out on Nintendo Switch with an $11.99 price tag.
